You see here a large box. The housecat inside the box is alive!

@ - "You know, I've always wondered if the state of the cat in Nethack is really determined at the moment you open the box."

Dogley bites Schroedinger's Cat. Schroedinger's Cat is killed!
Turns out, the state of the cat is not determined until several turns *after* the box is opened.

G because it's the first comic in over a week.

Someone needs to write a NetHack patch so that, if you play while connected to the Internet, the state of the cat is determined not by a pseudo-random number generator, but by HotBits.

Hey everyone! I have a Dudley-generated piece of fan art posted this week:

http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/skinhorse/series.php?view=archive&chapter=43857

It's for a webcomic called "Skin Horse," and was called possibly "the nerdiest art we've gotten yet." I'm so proud!

(If you want to actually understand my comic, you should read the second arc of the webcomic, "Borrowers." Or maybe just start from the beginnning. I recommend it highly.)

The Skin Horse link doesn't work anymore, here's one that does: http://skin-horse.com/comic/todays-comic-216/

Very nice, Slandor.
